What is a Termination Agreement?

A Termination Agreement is a document used to record a contract’s cancellation. The document affirms that all parties involved in the contract agree to cancel it and relinquish all their outstanding contractual obligations.

A Termination Agreement is also known as a:

  • Notice of cancellation of contract
  • Termination of contract
  • Notice of termination of contract

When does a Termination Agreement come into effect?

You’re free to decide when your Termination Agreement comes into effect. However, all parties involved in the cancellation need to agree on the date and specify it within the agreement.

You have a few options when choosing the date your Termination Agreement comes into effect. The contract can end immediately or on a future date. There’s also the option of it coming into effect once all the parties have signed the agreement.

LawDepot also provides the option to leave the date blank. Leaving it blank allows you to fill it in later if you’re unsure when you want the contract to end officially.

Am I allowed to cancel a contract after signing it?

It’s possible to cancel a contract after signing it. If all the parties involved agree to the dissolution, you can create a Termination Agreement to make it official. However, if the original contract has any rules relating to its cancellation, your Termination Agreement must follow them.

Some contracts have it written that the parties involved have a grace period, also called a trial period, to reconsider an agreement. A trial period often allows for a contract to end without anyone giving a reason. For example, many online subscriptions come with a 15 day trial period that allows you to back out of the agreement with no questions asked.

Additionally, you may be able to terminate a contract if another involved party doesn’t uphold their end of the deal. For example, if they fail to provide a service or an item you purchased doesn’t work as advertised. Depending on the contract’s rules and guidelines, there’s a good chance you can end the agreement if the contract’s purpose isn’t fulfilled.

How to create a Termination Agreement

You can create a customised Termination Agreement by completing LawDepot’s questionnaire. Using our template ensures you complete all the necessary steps

1. Specify the kind of agreement you’re terminating

You can use a Termination Agreement to bring many types of contracts and agreements to an end. Begin the creation of your document by indicating the type of agreement you’re cancelling. A Termination Agreement can be used to cancel the following types of agreements:

  • Letting or Tenancy
  • Services
  • Loan
  • Property Purchase
  • Employment

Select ‘Other’ if the agreement you want to terminate doesn’t fall under any of these categories. You’re able to specify the precise type of agreement later in the questionnaire.

2. State your location

Countries in the United Kingdom have their own rules and regulations for terminating contracts. State which country you’re in, and we’ll customise your Termination Agreement to meet its governing laws.

We have templates for:

  • England
  • Northern Ireland
  • Scotland
  • Wales

3. State each party’s details

Include the name and address of every party involved in the contract or agreement coming to an end.

4. Specify the original contract’s details

For your Termination Agreement to be valid, there can’t be any confusion over which contract it’s cancelling. Provide the date the original contract was signed and what purpose it served.

For example, if you’re terminating a Commercial Lease Agreement or Residential Tenancy Agreement, specify that you’re ending an agreement to rent a property and provide its address.

5. Include the termination date

The termination date is the day the original contract is no longer valid. Specify when you want your Termination Agreement to take effect by selecting one of the following options:

  • Today
  • On signing this Termination Agreement
  • Unsure
  • On a specific date

Selecting ‘Unsure’ will leave a blank space in your document for you to later fill in with a termination date.

6. Specify any compensation

State if any party will receive compensation when the original contract comes to an end. For example, it’s common for an employee to receive a severance package when an Employment Contract ends.

7. Provide signing details

State when the parties will sign the Termination Agreement and whether any witnesses will be present.

You can provide the signing date later if you’re unsure when the parties will sign the document. A blank space will be available at the bottom of your agreement.
